Wonderful venue owned by the university. If one has the chance, try and obtain access to the Bishop Cosin's Library, which is one of the most beautiful libraries in all of Britain!

As a Geographer study at Durham Univeristy the opportunity to experience an exhibition on loan from the British Antarctic Survey was too good to pass up. I went along to the exhibition which was incredibly informative for all levels - there is information accessible for both adults and children so it's a great day out for families and people interested in the science.

The location is also great as it's near to town so can easily be visited on a trip to Durham or the Cathedral and the staff are welcoming and friendly too.

Three things here. Firstly Bishop Cozens Library is a bibliophiles heaven. The smell itself might be bottled and sold. A amazingly intact 17th century library in a stunning room. Find time for this.
Secondly, there is an exhibition upstairs showing the development of Durham. Sounds a mite dull but it is not. Children as well as grown ups will love it.
Thirdly, a nice quiet restaurant/café at the back, and if the refectory in the Cathedral is full, or if the purse is suffering from overuse, then pop in here.
Was a student here for 6 years in the 60's, but being a scientist, never went in. How things have changed.

We happened upon this hidden treasure quite by chance - the library had just opened for a couple of hourse that afternoon and the lady on the desk strongly advised that we went down to see it - we then met a very interesting student from Sheffield in the library and he was extremely informative - explained how damaging the light was and why visitors are limited - really a fascinating place and so glad we saw it.
